Does anyone know the name of this pretty obsure movie Steve Martin did years ago.He played a frugal carpenter who horded gold pieces and was robbed .The sub plot was he was trying to gain custody of his daughter and was continually harassed by a wealthy politician.The piano themed score was amazing and the catch at the end was where a body was supposed to sunk in an old quarry lake, the lake was drained, the criminal was dead in the car and his gold that was robbed from him was found in the car.I'm no critic but it was both a crime story a tearjerker and eventual happy ending movie.A Baldwin brother was the thief,and Gabriel Byrne was the rich dude. Simple Twist Of Fate was the title wow what a memory I have.2 1/2 stars rainy day movie.
